Warner Bros. released a new trailer for “Mad Max: Fury Road” on Tuesday.

The film stars Tom Hardy as “Mad” Max Rockatansky , a role originally made famous by Mel Gibson in 1979. Max is a lone man fighting to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

In the trailer, Max fights to escape the grasp of the tyrannical Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne, who played villain Toecutter in the original film). Joe is distracted, however, when Furiosa (Oscar-winner Charlize Theron) runs off with a bevy of young women Joe keeps prisoner in his compound.

Max fights alongside Furiosa to keep the girls out of Joe’s hands. But along the way, they must face off against an army of psychopaths willing to die at Joe’s command.

The film also stars “X-Men: Days of Future Past” star Nicholas Hoult and the “Divergent” series’ Zoë Kravitz. George Miller, who directed the original three films with Gibson, returned to write and direct.

It will premiere in the U.S. on May 15.
